2008: first post of the year / primer post del año / primeiro post do ano / premier post de l’année


Hi. I’m back from a short break in Uruguay. I’m starting this year’s posting with some pictures taken in December around Plaza Cortázar (also known as Plaza Serrano). There have been some changes recently, like the closure of Babel, which was one of the first stores to open in the neighborhood many years ago, and the opening of new ones. Fortunately, the cafés around the plaza which are icons of Palermo Viejo persist, like the Bar El Taller (currently celebrating its 20th anniversary) and the Bar Utopía (and its mural painted by French artist Jean-Claude “Ginger” Poujoulet).

Hola! Estoy de regreso en Buenos Aires, luego de un breve descanso en Uruguay. En este primer post del año, estoy publicando unas fotos que tomé en diciembre alrededor de la Plazoleta Cortázar (o Plaza Serrano). El año empezó con algunos cambios, como el cierre de Babel, que fue una de las primeras tiendas del barrio y la apertura de nuevos locales. Por suerte, aún persisten algunos cafés que ya son íconos de Palermo Viejo, como el Bar El Taller (que cumple 20 años) y el Bar Utopía (y su mural pintado por el artista francés Jean-Claude “Ginger” Poujoulet).

Oi. Estou de volta em Buenos Aires, logo de passar alguns dias no Uruguay. Neste primeiro post do ano, estou publicando fotos que tirei em dezembro ao redor da Plazoleta Cortázar (ou Plaza Serrano). O ano começou com algumas mudanças: a Babel, uma das primeiras lojas de Palermo Soho, fechou definitivamente. Há algumas outras lojas novas, mas por sorte, os bares que já são íconos do bairro permanecem abertos, como o Bar El Taller (que está fazendo 20 anos) e o Bar Utopía (com o seu mural pintado pelo artista francês Jean-Claude “Ginger” Poujoulet).

Bonjour. Je suis dejà à Buenos Aires après des petits vacances au Uruguay. Dans ce premier post de l’année, je suis en train de publier de photos que j’ai prix en décembre, prés de la Plazoleta Cortázar (aussie connue comme Plaza Serrano). L’année a commençai avec des changes. Par example, la boutique Babel a fermé. C’etait une des premières boutiques de Palermo Soho. D’autres boutiques sont arrivées aussi. Heuresment, les cafés au tour de la Plazoleta, qui sont des icônes du quartier, sont encore ouvert, comme le Bar El Taller (qui fête son 20ème anniversaire) et le Bar Utopia et son mural realisé par l’ artist français Jean-Claude “Ginger” Poujoulet.

I actually stumbled across your page while looking for suggestions as to a place to work while in BsAs. Long story short, I'm going to be here for at least 6 months studying abroad, and really want to find some kind of job that would help me to network as well as get paid under the table...so I thought I would try to be a cocktail waitress or something...the only problem is I need some advice on where to apply. Clearly, I can speak english and my spanish is not bad at all, but i'm still a little hesitant to walk into a bar and ask about a job. Plaza Serrano was recommended to me by some Argentines since it is semi-touristy, but you seem to know what's going on...so, any suggestions how to go about doing this as well as where to go? Thanks so much!

Hi Hannah, if you are looking for a job in Palermo Viejo, you'll find more than 200 restaurants to apply. If I were you I'd choose first the most elegant and trendy places, then, I'd go for the regular ones, mostly around Plaza Serrano. I can give you a map with a list of restaurants if you wish.
